Queensland Election Position Social Investment Taskforce
Social investment (or impact investment as it is also referred to) is a growing market worldwide.
A proactive and focussed effort to build this market, through a Queensland Social Investment Taskforce, will deliver access to new capital for community services. Ultimately this will increase the effectiveness of service delivery and deliver positive outcomes for vulnerable Queenslanders.
Queensland can take a leadership role in this new world by establishing a Social Investment Taskforce (the Taskforce) to:
Attract entrepreneurial investment and ideas to achieve both positive social impact and financial returns;
Foster new relationships between community services organisations, the private sector and Government;
Develop a policy framework for social investment in Queensland including incentives for private sector investment to achieve positive social impact and financial returns; and
Showcase new social investment models and outcomes achieved.
